ABOUT MAD DASH

MAD DASH -- HOME OF IMPORTED AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS.

MOST OF OUR BREEDING STOCK IS IMPORTED FROM TALLAWONG KENNELS IN AUSTRALIA--TALLAWONG HAS BEEN BREEDING AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS FOR 35 YEARS AND IS ONE OF THE TOP PRODUCERS OF CHAMPIONS IN AUSTRALIA. KEN (now deceased) AND HELEN DICKSON WHO OWN TALLAWONG KENNELS ARE WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED THROUGHOUT AUSTRALIA AND THE WORLD. MAD DASH IS CURRENTLY PRODUCING AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS OUT OF PROVEN AUSTRALIAN TALLAWONG BREEDING. MAD DASH HAS CONSISTENTLY PRODUCED WINNERS, CHAMPIONS, PROVEN BREEDING STOCK AND GREAT FAMILY MEMBERS FOR OVER 10 YEARS. OUR CATTLE DOGS ARE CLOSER TO AUSTRALIA THAN MOST OF THE AMERICAN PRODUCED AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS.

WE SAW OUR FIRST AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG AT A LIVESTOCK AUCTION IN 1980. A FEW MONTHS LATER, OUR FIRST AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG BECAME PART OF OUR FAMILY. IN 1988, WE MADE OUR FIRST TRIP TO AUSTRALIA. WHEN WE CAME HOME, WE BROUGHT FOUR YOUNG AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS WITH US. WE BRED OUR FIRST LITTER OF AKC REGISTERED AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS IN 1990. WE RETURNED TO AUSTRALIA IN 1992. WHILE WE WERE THERE, I FOUND OPALS WHICH I JUST HAD TO HAVE. I PROMISED MY HUSBAND THAT IF I COULD HAVE THE OPALS, I WOULD BUY NO DOGS. FOUR MONTHS AFTER RETURNING HOME WITH THE OPALS, I IMPORTED FIVE AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOGS. (HA!! GOT THE OPALS AND THE DOGS). IN 1995, I IMPORTED ONE MORE DOG FROM AUSTRALIA.

OUR INTENT IS TO VISIT AUSTRALIA AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER OF 1999. I HAVE PROMISED MY HUSBAND THAT I WOULD BRING HOME NO MORE CATTLE DOGS. IF HE BELIEVES ME, I FIGURE I CAN SELL HIM A BRIDGE.
